Cafe Madrid Wine and Tapas Bar
Cooking has always been a fact of life for Wilson, Marcelo, and Jose Rodriguez. Two decades ago, the three brothers opened their first restaurant together in their home country of Ecuador. Wilson and Marcelo continued to run the place while Jose traveled to their grandfather's homeland of Spain and received some formal culinary training. Jose's studies eventually brought him to Connecticut, where his brothers joined him and started the next chapter in their partnership by founding Cafe Madrid Wine and Tapas Bar.
At Cafe Madrid, the Rodriguez brothers draw inspiration from culinary traditions throughout the Mediterranean. That being said, Spanish and Latin influences are the strongest by far. Sharable tapas are a highlight here, and they include everything from beef empanadas to platters of imported meats and cheeses. The restaurant's international inspirations are more apparent in entrées such as the Italian-style ossobuco and the French-style cassoulet.
A rustic vibe characterizes Cafe Madrid's dining room, thanks to the earthenware floor tiles, wrought iron chandelier, and rich wood accents. There's even a wall made from reclaimed pieces of wine cases, which effectively splits the main room into two seating sections. Latin-inspired ceramics, paintings, and Lite-Brite boxes further add to the restaurant's distinctive character.
